The film that made Jackie Chan a superstar!

Snake In The Eagle's Shadow is the kung fu comedy masterpiece starring superstar Jackie Chan (Rush Hour, Shanghai Noon).This star-making film was the first to feature Jackie's trademark mix of mind-blowing martial arts action withy hilariously choreographed slapstick.It also marked the historic fist collaboration between Jackie and director Yuen Woo Ping (Iron Monkey, action choreographer for The Matrix, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), to be followed by their huge his Drunken Master released a year later.

At the end of the China Dynasty, a 200-year-old deadly clan as the Eagle Claw Society has eliminated all styles of martial arts except for the revered Snake Fist style.The Grand Master of Eagle Claw is obsessed with finding - and killing - the remaining members of the Snake Fist School.Meanwhile, the wise, elderly Snake Fist Grand Master is busy in hiding, teaching a young, overworked servant (Jackie Chan) his awesome, super-fast fighting moves.An action-packed showdown is inevitable, but is the newest member of the Snake Fist school any match for an evil, legendary fighter with years of experience?
